MercyOne New Hampton to pause OB services

MecyOne New Hampton has announced their plans to put the hospital’s OB services on hold – effective July 1st, 2020. This is mainly because, many of the physicians at MercyOne have decided to no longer provide OB services. The hospital only delivers 30% of Chickasaw babies – which is only around 50-60 babies a year. 

CEO Aaron Flugum explains that over the next 7 months, MercyOne will be reaching out to find alternatives for their OB woes.

 

 

The community is invited to participate in one of the following discussion groups regarding the future of the obstetrics program at MercyOne New Hampton Medical Center.
